Attach a copy of the source to the reverse of each exhibit and make it available to the court. Sign and date each exhibit for court reference.
Keep your exhibits in a dry cool place, even after the court has returned them to you, for possible future use, such as in an appeal.
Cover your exhibit up if it is set up in the courtroom before you identify it. You don’t want to distract the jury from other evidence being presented, and you do want to build up the jury’s curiosity.
Keep in mind that the opposing attorney will be constantly looking for ways to discredit your exhibit.
